Questions 9-14

Read the information below and answer Questions 9-14.

    
Buying a Backpack

Most   walkers will know the value of a good backpack. Choosing one is a different   matter, as any trip to an outdoor shop will reveal. To help, gear expert   Peter Hawkins examines the ins and outs of a backpack.

A quick   glance through my outdoor trade directory reveals 49 companies that sell or   make rucksacks. If they all produce ten backpacks then we have a frightening   number for the humble beginner to choose from. So before you set foot in an   outdoor shop consider what you want your rucksack for.

The   first and most vital consideration is your anticipated load. If your walks   are short summer evening strolls then a small sack would be fine, but if your   walks are day-long and year-round then your sack will need to be bigger. Mine   typically contains a flask, packed lunch, waterproofs, clothing I've peeled   off during the day, first aid kit and an emergency shelter. In winter I add a   sleeping bag and a torch. I need a sack with a reasonable capacity.

My   current backpack is a Craghopper AD30 (30 liters) which is just big enough.   Admittedly, I do often lead walking parties in remote places so perhaps my   added responsibilities cause me to carry more. Compare my list with yours to   see if you need as much carrying space.
The   second consideration is weight. Choose a light sack, but make sure it can   take the weight of what  you are   carrying and it supports the load comfortably on your back.

The   next thing to consider is the rucksack's features. Today you can get quite   technically advanced backpacks boasting excellent features: advanced fabrics,   a variety of side and lid pockets, loops for walking poles, internal frames,   adjustable straps, hip belts and clever ventilation systems to keep your back   cool.

You   also need to look inside. It may seem obvious, but you should choose a   backpack that allows you easy access. Some have narrow necks that make   removing bulky items difficult. It's also important to choose a backpack that   fits the length of your back. Being six feet I need a long, thin rucksack   rather than a short, wider one. If I use the latter, I have a hip belt round   my stomach!

Last,   and probably least, we have the look of the sack to consider. Obviously, you   can't see it when it's on your back, but why buy something that won't look   good on you? After all, there's no shortage of colours or designs to choose   from.
